Microsoft Azure Makes Machine Learning Affordable and Accessible

It’s one of the hottest topics in software development that is not a buzzword. It’s for real. It’s also really tough. So how can anyone who needs machine learning get started? That’s where Microsoft Azure comes in. Offering a collections of tools that you can get started with for free, Azure makes it possible to perform machine learning tasks with little or no code involved. Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio and Workbench give novices and seasoned users a complete toolchain and workflow for a wide variety of machine learning projects. From data ingestion to operationalization via web services, developers and data professionals can leverage the power of predictive engines without a Ph.D. And since it’s opinion-free, supporting current and open source technologies such as Python, R and TensorFlow, you can integrate Azure ML with existing projects. In addition to the free starter tiers, it’s cost effective when you are ready to upgrade because everything is in the Azure cloud and pay for what you use. And you might not need to build anything at all. Azure Cognitive Services provides APIs that let you integrate vision, speech recognition into your app, today! Why buy a supercomputer when you can rent one? You don’t need a data center or a staff of eggheads, just Azure Machine Learning.

Deploying Infrastructure - Azure Resource Management

Does it take you days to deploy your infrastructure? In this session we are going to introduce you to Azure Resource Manager and demonstrate how we create Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates using Visual Studio 2017 and then deploy the infrastructure to Azure in minutes. We are going to peek under the covers of the ARM templates to show you what is going on inside the template and why you should be implementing it today. We will look at the Azure portal and walk through the infrastructure we deployed. Lastly we will look at the Azure Resource Template Visualizer and show you a great way to use it to get you started with ARM template creation.
